Never lose your photos again...


Some of you know that I'm a photo junkie. By that I mean that I love taking them and usually out of every trip/event I get about 100 shots. Which means that the amount of them grows fairly fast.

Last summer I suffered a hard drive crash which took down some 3000 unique photos that had no copies and/or backups. After that I started doing backups fairly regularly (around once every three month).

Doing backups is tedious especially if you don't have any software to aid you in that. I personally use Picasa (amazing photo organizing software from Google) for that, because backing up as well as restoring is easy and fast. It also gives you a literally "one click" option for uploading your pictures to online storage.

Today I stumbled upon an article that talked about general precautions that you can take for making sure that what happened to me doesn't happen to you.
